- Keytop Replacement Jig Model
keytop jig is used to remove the wood from the top of
the keys when replacing ivory keytops with plastic,
because the ivory is much thinner than the plastic.
If one does not remove material from the key stick,
the overall dimension of height-thickness of the key
will be changed resulting in case parts no longer fitting.
jig allows the removal of material from both the top
of the key stick (after the ivory has been removed by
hand) and the key fronts (which do not need to be removed
by hand). The tool can be used with a 10 1/2"
compound miter saw, or with any 10 1/2" chop saw.
will send you a model jig so that you can determine
what modifications would be needed in order to make
the jig work with your chop saw. The materials to make
the jig cost about $5.00 if a few pieces of scrap wood
and plywood are available to you. There are no written
plans because different saws have different measurements.
One size jig will not fit all saws.
